Well, now that LSH is done my top five are

Batgirl
Batwoman
Birds of Prey
Earth 2
Worlds' Finest

Simply because they're the only 5 titles I'm buying from DC. And I'm very likely to drop BoP soon.

It was the digests that introduced me as well. Between them & my cousin (who will forever be to blame for my comics obsession ;) ) I was able to figure out who these people were, and wanted to know...

At my LCS they are priced by the ratio--a 1:10 cover is $10, a 1:25 cover is $25, etc. It's arbitrary, but if someone is willing to shell out the cash for it, more power to 'em.

The only variants I...

This is where I'm sitting lately. I enjoy a number of books these days, but I don't think I'd call any of them "fun". That word to me brings to mind Ambush Bug, Blue Devil (Cohn/Cullins) or even...

I beat you by a few months--mine was G.I. Joe #21. I've still got it, along with the previous 20 I picked up as back issues (and plenty more going forward).

I'm currently sitting at 19 long boxes &...

Zahn's trilogy was great for one thing: it brought us new Star Wars stories for the first time in ages. Going back & rereading, though, I have to agree with Syl--good concept, spotty execution.

I'll admit I haven't read the nu Supergirl, but I don't think the current version of Superboy fits with the Legion at all.

I'm all for returning the Lost Legionnaires to the 31st century. I...

I trust Robinson's world building. I don't trust TPTB to allow him to do it his way. I've become a lot more cynical & curmudgeonly since the reblaunch...

Earth 2.3 beta. It's still being designed and there's likely going to be plenty of changes before the "final" version rolls out.

Yeah, Paul could easily have done an issue (or more) on each of the girls. Trying to cram both of their "origins" as well as their first meeting into one 20-page issue meant sacrificing some of the...

This shows the key difference between long-term writing & decompressed writing. Unlike quite a few of the zero issues I flipped through today, none of Earth-2 #0 felt like filler. There's a point...

It's odd...I like most of the characters involved here (LOVE seeing Courtney), but I have no desire to read the book. The premise (such as it is) seems cliched and the overall tone of the New 52...

Well, tying in closer with Harvest is a negative for me. I skipped the crossover issue recently and--a few "completist" twinges aside--came through none the worse for wear.

This is the biggest thing for me. I never felt the 5-year jump between arcs--the characters all felt exactly the same in the "present" as they did in the "past". It's kind of jarring coming from...

Yeah, the Amethyst book is a possible for me. Not feeling the rest. And despite my love for Hawk & Dove, I don't know if I'll buy a 40-page book just for 1/4 of it.
